Mr Greg,

Thank you very much from depth of my heart for being on [at] my side, [let us] pray for its continuity [continuation].

Dear brother, as you know unfortunate[ly] we are living in the zone in need of persons and organizations that can prayer for our survival and offer their graces.

I am writing this letter for the emergency of urgent help for six months from March 2014-August 2014 for:

1. water for dying people and cattles

2. food – nothing grows in heat

3. school for children

Am inviting you: whoever gives one of these little ones a cup of cold water will receive reward in heaven. Luke 21:1-4.

Please can you to help poor villagers of Awo, who die of thirst now?

God bless you.

Abba Eyassu [Joshua]

Look for more news as we investigate.

Meanwhile, please pray.
